Boat trips on the Shropshire Union Canal
for children and adults with disabilities

First trip of the Maughan Lass

Book a trip on the Overwater Wheelyboat for your group!

The Overwater Wheelyboat Project is a non-profit making enterprise run in conjunction with The Wheelyboat Trust to provide boat trips on the Shropshire Union Canal, one of the most scenic canals in the country. This service offers an enriching life experience to disabled and special needs children and adults.

The offical launch of the Wheelyboat was on the 27th June 2015 where it was named the Maughan Lass in memory of Richard Maughan. Co-founder of Overwater Marina.

Maughan Lass

This project is supported by the award winning Overwater Marina in Audlem - Inland Marina of the Year 2015 - who have kindly donated a specially built dock and is the operational centre for the Overwater Wheelyboat. Situated in the beautiful Cheshire countryside and with a full range of disabled facilities and on-site cafe, makes the marina the perfect base.

The Wheelyboat Project was started in 2015 by Rodney Cottrell who started the RNLI Audlem Lass in 2011 and has carried over 4,000 passengers every year from Overwater Marina into Audlem village, with donations from passengers going to the RNLI. This new charitable enterprise is a separate project that stands on its own and looks forward to being as great a success as the Audlem Lass.

To book a trip for you or your group please call Overwater Marina on 01270 812677 or email info@overwatermarina.co.uk.

If you are able to contribute a donation to this worthwhile project, please contact Rodney Cottrell on 01270 811454 or by email at rodney@kynsal.co.uk
